This chapter provides an overview of California's serpentine grasslands, including their ecological peculiarities as well as the features that they may once have shared with other, now vanished, grassland ecosystems. It draws upon ecological studies that have been conducted in the serpentine grasslands at university field stations: the University of California's McLaughlin Reserve (Napa, Lake, and Yolo Counties) and Sedgwick Reserve (Santa Barbara County), Stanford University's Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve (San Mateo County), and the Coyote Ridge study site (Santa Clara County).
